“Every graduation ceremony is special to the college, as we celebrate the success of each student. It is important that we truly celebrate what our graduates have achieved – they have overcome a series of unusual circumstances over the last several months,” said Hinds President Dr. Stephen Vacik.
“We are continuing to develop new ways to reconnect with alumni, and this will hopefully be an outstanding event that reconnects everyone.”
“I really enjoy trying to help create opportunities for students to better themselves. What better way to do that than by creating scholarship opportunities for students who need them.”
“Every instructor I encountered in my time at Hinds cared for their students deeply and truly wanted to see their students succeed.”
“Hinds supplied people who acted more like family than teachers, and I could not ask for better.”
“Hinds will award 1,220 certificates and degrees, with some students receiving more than one credential.”
“A total 593 students graduated with 320 students choosing to participate in one of the ceremonies.”
“This accomplishment you are here celebrating today is the result of choosing everyday not to give up.”
“Words can’t begin to express the appreciation I have for President Vacik and VP Harris for choosing and entrusting me to lead Hinds Athletics into the next chapter,” Werremeyer said. “It’s an exciting feeling to know that in a few short weeks my family and I will be heading to Raymond to become part of the Hinds Community College family. This is an incredible opportunity and I can’t wait to get started!”
